After 65 years of which 4,5 years with cancer my dad has passed away

Postby Ratepo » Mon Apr 17, 2017 7:24 am

It is with great sadness that I announce that my dear father has passed away Sunday the 9th of April.

I don't post this just to have your grief, but it's when people look for my posts in the future they will see that my dad's 'story' has ended as I won't visit this forum anymore. He had a great life till the end, 3 weeks before his last breath he was still playing golf and nothing seemed wrong. He went too sudden and way too young, but his 65 years were full of love with friends and family. His last days at home were without pain and without fear. He peacefully slid away from life.

Although many people from the early days aren't physically present at earth anymore, I want to thank everyone here for his/her tips and advices for the past years, you all have been a tremendous source of help, knowledge and comfort.
